San Mateo, CA (PRWEB) July 21, 2014
Following the recent announcement of the availability of Alfresco Activiti Enterprise, Alfresco Software today announced partner ecosystem growth to bring customers expanded business process management (BPM) expertise and innovation. New partnership agreements with BP3 and Sixtree provide Activiti-specific BPM consulting and integration services, while a new technology alliance with Fluxicon delivers continued innovation to Alfresco Activiti Enterprise customers.
Fluxicon is a leader in the quickly emerging area of process mining, which delivers insights into operational business processes, identifying process bottlenecks and improving process orchestration, execution and efficiency. The new partnership provides for integration between the Alfresco Activiti Enterprise BPM product and Fluxicon’s Disco process mining suite, enabling data-rich exploration and refinement of Activiti-driven processes.
Smart companies are starting to realize that digital strategies aren’t only about customer engagement; they’re also about unlocking value from existing operational data and systems to improve how knowledge is shared and work is coordinated.
“Process mining is an emerging area of practice that companies can employ to drive major improvements by analyzing existing operational data,” said Neil Ward-Dutton, Research Director at MWD Advisors. “Seeing a partnership like this between Alfresco and Fluxicon is exciting, because it has the potential to help customers work to uncover critical insights more quickly than ever.”
“We see agile tools like Alfresco Activiti as the future of BPM and so we’re thrilled to announce this partnership and integration with Alfresco,” said Anne Rozinat, co-founder at Fluxicon. “Process mining is mostly useful when insights can be rapidly applied to real-world processes, which Activiti enables.”
New agreements with BP3 and Sixtree add specialized BPM consulting and systems integration expertise to the Alfresco ecosystem. BP3, a leading provider of BPM solutions and services, has been working with Activiti for more than three years and has already delivered a number of Activiti deployments. Sixtree, a specialist in open source middleware, will deliver Alfresco Activiti-related services to the Australian market, strengthening Alfresco’s position as a BPM player in that region. Sixtree brings decades of expertise in process consulting, open source and middleware to the Alfresco ecosystem.
“We’re tremendously excited that BPM partners of this caliber are choosing to work with Alfresco to meet the changing needs of customers,” said Paul Holmes-Higgin, GM of the Activiti business unit at Alfresco. “Alfresco Activiti is a new approach to BPM and one that aligns well with today’s requirements for business processes to be dynamic, lightweight and flexible. Together with our partners, we enable a new way to work.”
